[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E852] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING THE WESTERN HERITAGE OF COLORADO SPRINGS ______ HON. DOUG LAMBORN of colorado in the house of representatives Tuesday, June 20, 2017 Mr. LAMBORN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the proud and important Western Heritage of Colorado Springs. Whether it is the 81st Western Street Breakfast, the 77th Annual Pikes Peak of Bust Rodeo, or the 68th Pikes Peak Range Ride, our Colorado Springs community has supported this heritage for many generations. I would also like to note that the proceeds from these events go to supporting our brave men and women in uniform at our five local military installations. If you are one of the 10,000 people at the Street Breakfast, the many thousands at the Rodeo, or the two hundred plus Range Riders, you are taking part in a long and commendable tradition. And, with your continued enthusiastic support, it's one I know will last forever. Thank you so much to the staffers, board members, and dedicated volunteers who make each of these events possible. Each June and July Colorado Springs shows the entire world what is so special about the heritage of the West. ____________________
